Fifteen-year-old Alex Jason owns a vast collection of vintage Apple devices which he now plans to exhibit near his home in the US state of Maine.

Alex started collecting his "orchard" at the age of 10 and says he has around 1,000 items, stored in the basement of his family home.

While Bill has contributed to the collection, Alex has also raised money for new items by mowing lawns, as well as fixing and re-selling other computers.

It's a fantastic machine, they were fast when they came out but not now - you have to have patience and I don't have a lot."

So far Apple has not offered any official support, although Alex is hoping to get in touch with Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, aka Woz.

"She's doing a lot with Photoshop - cover art for video games."
